It replaces the standard system functions - brightness, volume. It adapts to the software you're using, so in this case, in Safari, it shows buttons for the favorite sites.
Once you're there, it becomes a back, search field, tab, and more. just the tools you need.
It can provide surfaces for tools you use. In photos, it has an interface for straightening a photo.
Since it's near the keyboard, it's helpful when you're typing. You get quicktype suggestions, so you can tap while typing.
Touch ID is also on the Mac for the very first time.
Log in with your fingerprint, integrated into the power button. Sapphire crystal, and supported by a brand new chip, the Apple T1, with secure enclave.
This is how you get secure purchases right from your MacBook Pro.
